From the Test Kitchen

A riff on the traditional Caesar salad, we're using nutty tahini at the base of our tangy dressing, which brings together a crunchy mix of romaine, tomatoes, and garlic-caper breadcrumbs.

Romaine & Tomato Salad with Tahini Dressing & Caper Breadcrumbs
  • 4 oz Grape Tomatoes
  • 1 Romaine Lettuce Heart

Tips from Home Chefs

1 Prepare the ingredients & make the dressing

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel 1 clove of garlic; using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate into a paste. Roughly chop the lettuce. Halve the tomatoes. Halve the lemon crosswise; squeeze the juice into a large bowl, straining out the seeds. Add the tahini, worcestershire sauce, half the cheese, 2 tablespoons water, a drizzle of olive oil. Whisk to combine.

2 Make the caper breadcrumbs

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the capers, garlic paste, and breadcrumbs. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until browned. Turn off the heat.

3 Make the salad & serve your dish

To the bowl of dressing, add the chopped lettuce and halved tomatoes; season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Serve the salad topped with the caper breadcrumbs and remaining cheese. Enjoy!
